Bonanza Has Never Looked or Sounded Better!
on September 5, 2016
I've watched Bonanza all my life, but I'm not quite old enough to have watched and remembered the episodes during their original run. I've never seen these episodes look so gorgeous and in full glorious restored color as they do on this set, and of course they're uncut and unedited. The syndication reruns on TV are of course edited and washed-out looking, and the cheap public domain collections of episodes from Seasons 1 and 2 are washed-out looking, and the original theme music replaced with some horrific generic crap. These official season sets, long as they took to arrive, remedy that. The set also comes with some nice behind the scenes production shots and such, original NBC Peacock logos and network bumpers, and a few vintage episode promos that haven't been restored like the episodes, but well worth seeing at least once for any Bonanza fan. One minor quibble I have, and it's minor, but I wish the original NBC Peacock logo and bumpers were put on every episode, but they're not. They're only on the first episode and a couple others in the set. All in all though, a beautiful set, and recommended to any serious Bonanza fan.
